#WQWWC – Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Rebirth”

Hey, EVERYBODY! It’s that time again! Time to join in the “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge,” co-sponsored with Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes, right here on silverthreading.com and myself, Silver Threading!

Please use #WQWWC on Twitter so we can retweet you and spread the inspiration.

Welcome!  This is an open invitation to join in on our blogging event called the “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge!

Ronovan and I are really enjoying all the creativity that has been blossoming from this challenge. There has been fascinating science fiction stories, poetry, and even a song or two!


If you like the OLD Writers Quote Wednesday where you selected a quote and talked about the author of the quote you CAN still do that. The quotes are a pathway to find inspiration in your writing. You can write whatever you would like as long as you include your quote with your piece. You can write poetry, music, share songs, write flash fiction…

It’s your chance to highlight your favorite author’s quotes that give inspiration to you as a writer. Do you feel like your writing is getting stale? Are you looking for inspiration to keep writing? Then you have come to the right spot!

Each week we will include a theme for anyone who needs additional inspiration. You don’t have to follow our theme if you don’t want to. It is optional.

You have from this Wednesday until the following Tuesday to participate! Woo HOO!

In fact, Ronovan and I will alternate each week with a themed prompt post written on Silver Threading. This will give you a different perspective weekly to keep your inspiration flowing.

Make sure to join us. You never know what we will come up with!

This is my week, and Ronovan will be back next week to share his theme with you. We thought it would be fun to split the brain power needed each week. All of you get hosts that are reasonably fresh and fun to play with each week, so join in!


So what do you do?

You select a quote that inspires you. Then, write a short piece of flash fiction or poetry to share with us all using the quote either in your story or as the title of your masterpiece. You can include photos, photo quotes, or anything else that helps to highlight your quote.

Either create your own sayings (because after all, we are all writer’s here) or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.  Just make sure that credit is given to other’s work.

You can use Fotoflexer,Picmonkey, or Canva.com, or any other program that you wish to make your own images. Click the links to go to the programs.

Each Wednesday, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is take part! You have from that Wednesday until the following Tuesday night to share your creativity inspired by a quote. We will share your posts on social media for added exposure.

BOTTOM LINE: Have fun and be creative!

The metamorphosis was almost complete. Anna felt what was left of her being float into a black abyss where no light could reach her airy form. She felt the darkness of the chasm as it closed around her propelling her soul forward. Stars appeared, twinkling in the dark void as if lighting her path towards the light.

Abruptly, Anna could feel her earthbound desires slip away into the inky blackness. Surprisingly, she did not miss the yearnings of her human form. Instead, she finally felt true freedom. There were no encumbrances to hold her back. Her death was complete.

Yet, Anna knew her destiny. It was to serve the nymphs who had guided all of the females who had come before her. It was a gift for her loyalty to the Gods. It would be her fate to be reborn as a Vila meadow fairy and protect the plants and animals who lived and grew there. Anna accepted this new beginning.

As a Vila nymph, Anna would have power over storms, which she would delight in sending down on mankind when they crowded her territory. Somehow Anna instinctively knew that the Vila had the choice to live in meadows, or ponds, or even in the clouds. Vila were shapeshifters who took the form of swans, horses, wolves, or even beautiful women. Some Vila were the spirits of human women who had been thoughtless in their lifetimes and now drifted between here and eternity.

Anna had chosen carefully. She chose the meadows where she could be free. Humans would recognize her as a lark bunting, a tiny black bird with a white stripe on each of her wings. She was to only reveal her true form if danger threatened or if she needed help. However, Humans were not to be trusted at any costs.

In the gray depths of her memory, Anna recalled cobweb-like threads of past and future memories where an amber-haired human girl, called the fairy guardian, whispered the tales of the meadow fairies to her in airy wisps of dreams. Anna’s metamorphosis was nearly complete.

She flew into the blue sky and called out her song. The song of the meadow fairy.

This is just a sneak peek into the second book of The Heart Stone Chronicles… The Meadow Fairy.

So COME ON! Share a quote about rebirth and inspire us!

Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to hear what wild and wonderful things inspire you!

  21. Here’s my contribution for a week. You might be able to guess whose “true story” (with a slathering of poetic license) this is. :=)
